Follow us on LinkedIn – Cholesterol testing is gaining prominence as the basic and most important marker for assessing the risk of heart disease, the number one killer the world over. Various studies have conclusively proven the link between increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and abnormally high levels of cholesterol or lipid disorders.

Technological innovations are making these kits more reliable, fast, easy to use, and cost effective, compared to laboratory testing, thus explaining the steady growth forecast in the overall Cholesterol and Other Cardiovascular Testing market. On the other hand, several new variants of cardiovascular and other tests such as homocysteine test, C-reactive protein test in the product line promise more clarity in CVD risk assessment.
